Launch-criminal-probe-into-Grenfell-Tower-fire

Parmenio Sano | 17 Giugno, 2017, 04:26

Officials on Friday increased the death toll from 17 to 30, with numerous missing still unaccounted for.

Twenty-four people are still in the hospital, 12 of them in critical condition.

Rydon Group, the construction company which undertook the work, also declined to say whether they had been used, but said the revamp "met all required building control, fire regulation, and health and safety standards".

"We need to know what happened".

Cundy said identifying victims will be very challenging and police will use worldwide disaster victim protocols which include dental records, fingerprints and DNA. Stuart Cundy said that "we believe this number will sadly increase".

I have heard horrifying stories from the fire brigade, from police and from victims themselves who were in that tower but also from other local residents, some of whom of course have not been able to go back to their homes either. However the number of calls are no indicator of the actual number of individuals actually unaccounted for as numerous calls involved multiple reports about one person.

Grenfell Towers was a low-income housing unit, and most of the people who died were people of color, many of them Muslim. The Independent reported that those up early for Ramadan may have saved more lives when it came to spreading word and evacuating people from the building. The fire is thought to have started when a fridge exploded in a kitchen on the fourth floor.

Prime Minister Theresa May, who has faced criticism for failing to meet survivors when she visited the scene on Thursday, has ordered a full public inquiry into the disaster in response to mounting anger that the fire might have been preventable.


The Syria Solidarity Campaign said Alhajali, a civil engineering student, had been in a flat on the 14th floor when the fire broke out, and had spent two hours on the phone to a friend in Syria.

"Mohammed came to this country for safety and the United Kingdom failed to protect him", the group said.

He said it would have "delayed and made the refurbishment of the block more disruptive".

Queen Elizabeth II, the opposition Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn and Mayor Khan have all met the block's former residents during their visits.

The PM said people "deserve answers" as to why the fire spread so rapidly and that the inquiry "will give them".

Portillo said: "The Prime Minister would have been shouted at by the residents, but she should have been willing to take that".

Specialist Urban Search and Rescue crews are working to make the block safe so that firefighters can continue to search the building.
